Nearly every subject at Northampton School for Boys exceeded national expectations according to its head teacher who is celebrating “outstanding” A-level results.
Richard Bernard, said that more than 10 per cent of all entries were graded at A* and 28 per cent of entries were graded at A or above.
He said 27 students achieved a minimum of three A grades.
“What is particularly pleasing is the success across the curriculum,” he added. “Virtually all subjects exceeded national expectations for student attainment and progress with many excelling in regard to both aspects of achievement.”
Deirdre Kennedy, assistant head and director of the sixth form, said: “Over 160 students received university offers – more than 40 per cent of which to the very best ‘Russell Group’ universities - and all but a handful have been accepted at their university of choice which includes three students who will be attending Oxbridge.
“Those who just missed by a grade or two are now in clearing and will get a place in the coming days.
“Our students work so hard and I am truly delighted for them.”
Mr Bernard added: “I am immensely proud of our outgoing Year 13. As a year group they have been fully immersed in the life of the school with outstanding contributions in the arts and on the sports Field.
“The student leadership team worked tirelessly in support of NSB and represented the school superbly well in major events and functions.
“Overall the cohort were outstanding role models to the younger students and I wish all of them the very best of luck in their future.
Stand out performers included: Jacky Ho, Harry Salt, Theo Walkley-Bartlett, Andrew Hetherington and Lauren Woolley, who all achieved three A*s.
